Grow Gardens with The Nashville Food Project, Woodmont

The Nashville Food Project gardens are vibrant growing spaces that supply organic produce for our meal programs. Whether you have never stepped foot in a garden or are an experienced farmer, we welcome and encourage all skill levels to join us in working our gardens. 

We are a full-circle organization; growing, cooking, and serving meals allows us to get food from local soil to local people, and your help in our gardens is the first step in making the whole process possible. The produce you help us grow and harvest will go into delicious meals served to those with little or no access to fresh, healthy foods.

Garden tasks vary with the seasons and may include planting, weeding, composting and harvesting. We love to share all sorts of gardening knowledge while we work. You will have the chance to get your hands (and everything else) dirty, so dress for the occasion. We recommend boots or closed toe shoes and layers if the weather is chilly. Garden projects will occur rain or shine (with the exception of lightning!) so bring a rain jacket and hat. We’ll provide the gloves, but you’re always welcome to bring your own. We can’t wait to welcome you to one of our gardens! 


‚ÄčLet's Move Outside
Volunteer hours associated with this project support the “Let’s Move! Outside” initiative, a nationwide effort to provide opportunities for young people to work, learn, play, and serve outdoors and on public lands. This effort is made possible through partnership between the YMCA of the USA, the Department of the Interior, American Express, the YMCA of Middle Tennessee, Nashville’s Mayor Megan Barry, and Hands On Nashville.
